It's been a minute, hasn't it?
I know that there's been a relative radio silence here on da, and I've been wanting to do something about it for a while now. But I wasn't sure what. The people supporting me over the past year were over on patreon, not deviantart... and the project I was working on didn't seem to fit the DA format. So how could I get back to the way things used to be?
I talked with a few really amazing people, and they helped me to work out how to take where I was, and where I am, and merge those things together.
So going forward I will post Collector progress updates here on DA just like I used to with the FMP section of SL every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, at 5p EST ... but with a wrinkle: the updates will link to youtube videos that record "The Collector" as it comes together. Since Visual Novels are more suited to video, not static images or gifs, that was my best solution (for now). You can view the first three of these updates here.SL 201SL 202SL 203
Also, I have a backlog of Patreon exclusive art I've been meaning to release here on DA. I will always keep a three month buffer of art exclusive to my patrons, but I will be posting work every Thursday at 5p EST until we get caught up to that 3 month buffer. It's gonna take a minute, there's a lot of it ^^ You can see the first update right here!
Likewise, Fridays I'll have work to post from Benefactors that we need to be caught up on. Benefactors were basically a commission tier on my patreon that I'm currently phasing out, but I have a huge backlog of art to post from them. I hope everyone enjoys what we've worked on and put together...! You can see the first update here:
So in short, my weekly schedule will look like this:
Mon 5p EST - SL Update
Tue 5p EST - SL Update
Wed 5p EST - SL Update
Thur 5p EST - Patron Art Update
Fri 5p EST - Benefactor Art Update
Thanks to everyone who has supported me, and hello to everyone who I've missed for the past year or so! Let's please continue to make wonderful things together!!
